What to do if you reach your bank limits
If your daily transactions are below the UPI limit and you’re still having trouble, try a different bank account. Your bank might have its own limits on how much you can send or receive. You can also contact your bank directly for more information and clarity regarding the transaction failure.
To protect against fraud, some transactions might get flagged for further review. If you’re having trouble making a transaction and you don’t think you reached a limit, contact the support team of the UPI app you are using.
